What I’m Lovin’ {this} Wednesday

*Living in a city that everyone loves to visit. I love NY, you love NY (well, you should, if you don’t!), we all love NY. One of the great things about living here is the fact that people from all over this great big crazy world flock to see this city of all cities to experience its magic for themselves.


Also, your far-away friends and relatives are more enticed to visit you when you live here. I had family from Nova Scotia in town last week, and it was suuuuch a treat to see them after about 15 years.

wonderful Canadians invading Times Square

So yes, this is my subtle way of saying please come visit. You all should know who you are. 🙂

*The return of comfy sweatpants and t-shirts  when the air cools at night (and clearly the ridiculous faces that come part-and-parcel with selfies)

was hoping this shirt motivates me to run faster (or fool people into thinking i'm a speed demon) but really it just makes me want to curl up and go to sleep

*The great Autumn spice revival : aka, the grand return of everything pumpkin spice and appley and gingerbready and cinnamony and all that jazz. Love this craze (along with every other girl in the world, yes, I’m aware).


While I will naturally gravitate towards anything pumpkin flavored at this time of year, I did just see an ad for something that sounds so wrong: Pumpkin Pie Vodka. I can’t even. No thanks.

*Planks. I love ’em. I started out with a minute or two here and there, and now I push myself to hold them for as long as 10 minutes (woot!), alternating the form of plank every minute or so (hands, elbows, sides). It’s amazing what your body can do if you put in the time and hard work, and I kinda like the sweat dripping into my eyes and down on the mat in front of me. Nothing quite like measuring your life in sweat droplets. 

*Being a student again.
  I just started my 2nd year of grad classes for a (second) Master’s in Marriage and Family Therapy. Yes, one day I hope to tell people what they’re doing wrong in their lives. JK. I actually want to help people. Promise.

I’m one of those wannabe forever students who actually loves opening text books and learning things. I love the forward-motion of working toward something and educating myself in a field that interests me, and I’m fascinated by psychology and the complexities of relationships. So far, this program has been a really good thing in my life, and I’m grateful to be able to have this opportunity.


Aww, thanks honeybun. (blush)

Question: What makes you smile lately?

  1. Love the shirt! And absolutely LOVE planks. They are my go-to quick workout to bust out WHILE I’m at work. I’ve only gotten up to 5 minutes, but I’ve been doing them stationary. I know you’ve mentioned switching them up, but I wonder how long I could make it if I did…
